Monday Curb Your Enthusiasm 10pm, Sky Atlantic
THE Return Of The King Whinge. It’s been six years since the last series of Curb ended with Larry David exiling himself to Paris, and, without his shining example and advice on matters of etiquette and social interaction, it’s been pretty, pretty hard trying to make it through the day. Put it this way: Larry’s been offscreen so long we’ve never even seen him dealing with an Uber driver. The questions of where he’s been, what he’s been doing, and, crucially, what’s been annoying him are pressing – but sadly, no advance preview material was available for this long-awaited ninth series (unless you count the episodes leaked online as part of the recent HBO hack). But we know a few things. Larry is back in LA; he has a new project on the go; all the regular cast return, along with new guests like Bryan Cranston; and, according to co-star Jeff Garlin, “the storyline is kind of crazy ...” Whatever’s coming, watching LD getting to grips with America’s Trumpian era will be a trip worth taking.
